There was something mysterious going on in her Michigan house. A mother who took part in this strange event wanted to get this nightmare from its source. When she heard noises at night, something drove her crazy after a few minutes. She even began accusing her partner of the strange phenomenon, but he refused and said he knew nothing.
The Video From The Monitor
She had enough of what was going on, so she was planning to see the film caught in the incident. She wasn’t ready for what she’d find in the record. She set up a baby monitor in her daughter’s room to document what was happening in the room. She was unbelieving when she saw her daughter scratching her skin in the evening. Joshua, her fiancé, refused and said that he knew nothing and could not respond, no matter how often she asked him.
Scratches On Her Face
She was ready to catch her fiancé on the spot when she sat and watched the recording in her house. But when she watched the video that captured the event, she felt her skin began to crawl because of what she saw in the video. It wasn’t her fiancé caught in the movie. The couple Heather Brough and Joshua Higgins, lived under Joshua’s Mother in the guesthouse in Michigan.
Heather Brough and Joshua Higgins were all in Michigan for a year together with their one-year-old daughter, Lily. And then, one day, there was something that made it possible for the family to leave as fast as possible due to the event there. It was when the mom took out her daughter and noticed something awful. She was scratched on the face of her little girl.
Things Began To Get Tense
Heather Brough didn’t think about what was happening at the beginning. Yet, over time, she saw more marks on his daughter’s skin following the healing of the last scratches. She knew she had to confront her fiancé with this issue. The couple had a constant relationship and lived together in the same house.
Had To Do Something
It was as though their dream came true, living in a quiet town as a happy young couple. The couple knows they were perfectly placed. They had a nice little daughter, loved one another, and had a comfortable family house. But one thing they didn’t expect happened, and then everything changed.
Heather Brough took a nap when she heard strange noises inside her house. There was a bump on the floor, the screaming sound of the door, and even a sound like a footprint in their kitchen. After all these incidents, she found that her daughter had marks and scratches on her face after checking her daughter in the morning. It was then that she decided she had enough.
Finding Out The Truth
Heather Brough asked her fiancé Joshua Higgins about the incident in her daughter’s room. She asked him if he was waking up at night and even asked him about when he got into her daughter’s room. Finally, on the face of their little daughter, she asked him about the scratches. Was that the end of their happy relationship?
Due to the incident, things became tense for both. Joshua refused all Heather was accused of. Heather was determined on the spot to catch him. But she didn’t expect something worse than she believed would be seen. She understood that she had to do something for her family’s safety. She knew she couldn’t live inside this house for the last time.
Joshua denied everything she accused him of. Because of what happened, Heather thought she was out of her mind. She imagined many possible cases like an animal continuing to come into the room of her daughter. After some re-evaluations, she always knew that she checked whether all doors and windows were closed before she went to sleep.
Heather realized it had to be something, or perhaps it was someone inside their home already. She also knew this could be the reason her relationship with Joshua would end. Heather was determined to find a response in this awful event. The couple decided after some discussion to purchase a baby monitor to see their daughter Lily inside their room.
Need To Get Out
Joshua and Heather placed the monitor at the angle of their daughter’s crib. Joshua was sure it was because, when she slept, her daughter Lily scratched her face in the night. He told his partner that during their sleep, the babies could scratch their faces because of their nails. But Heather was cautious enough to trim the nail of her daughter to keep her from hurting after the first incident.
The Truth Revealed
Heather wasn’t ready for the truth. She wants to know where all that marked in her daughter’s face came from. She planned to set it all up to reveal the truth. Even Joshua and Heather bought the latest Logitech Circle 2 baby monitor. The baby monitor had a vision at night that could be seen even without any lights. They found that this technology could help them to solve the mystery.
Calling The Authorities
The next morning, marks or scratches were still on the face of her daughter. Heather decided that moment to watch what was recorded on the baby monitor. It was about finding out who or what caused her scratches on her face. She was afraid after watching the recording of what she saw on the monitor. Her own home became her own personal nightmare, she discovered.
Getting The House Investigated
Heather saw a man appearing inside Lily’s bedroom, having a blurred figure. She thought that while she was asleep her fiancé, Joshua was responsible for this type of event. She had a lot of questions on her mind which bothered her. One was why he didn’t tell her what was inside their home and the other was why he kept it from her secret.
Other Strange Occurrences
She thought it was just some sort of a prank or perhaps, her fiancé Joshua was a sleepwalker. To know the source of that nightmare, she needed to watch the recording. She was terrified by what she saw on the video next. A man’s shadow looking grainy walked past a crib of her daughter. And it looked like Lily ‘s daughter knew there was someone inside her room, and sat upright.
Lily grabbed the side of the crib slowly to stand up. As she stood inside her crèche, she curiously looked around if someone was there. Somewhere, the man turned to the monitor. Heather realized that this man wasn’t the person she thought. It was out of her expectations that this man would be seen on the monitor.
Set To Return
Heather’s breath was delayed for a second after she saw in the recording and her scalp began to sniff. Her heartbeat more than the normal heartbeat because she knew that the man on the monitor was never known. He was an outsider. She kept watching the recording as she was unable to take this mysterious intruder away from her eyes.
When Heather saw that the stranger roamed her girl’s room, she felt uncomfortable as her belly had been knotted by the scene she saw. She asked herself who the man in the room of her daughter was. Heather knew she heard strange sounds and noises at night and how Lily had her scratches on her face.
A Dark Past
She continued to play the video many times as soon as she saw the recording. After looking a few more times, the man became transparent when he passed Lily’s place. Heather then found that it was not a person and she saw on the monitor that it was not a human being. She felt chills running over her body, pulling her daughter closer.
Leaving As Soon As Possible
She knew she had to say what was happening inside her house to her fiancé Joshua. She knew they needed to get immediately out of their house. As Joshua watched the movies, he said, “It was chilling. It was literally chilling down your spine, so what if the factor was what I saw? Heather said, “It was so strange and frightening to see Lily’s face with the scratches.”
Heather said, “I was crying, ‘What happened to you?’ I grabbed her jacket and ran over to my mother-in-law’s house. Nobody knew what happened. We wondered if she’d scratched herself, but when we put her hands up to her scratches it did not match up.” She stated that while she was still frightened by the incident inside her house.
After the record was watched by her fiancé Joshua, it sent chills into his spine, and he tightened his stomach due to the terror he felt. He was totally afraid of what he just witnessed in the film. He knew he had to take his family as soon as possible from the house. He ran out with Heather and Lily and immediately phoned the police.
A Plausible Explanation
Joshua was referred to as Michigan’s Scientific Paranormal Research. It was a group focused on paranormal events in various areas. The group found something more frightening than before. Mike Priest was a co-owner of Michigan’s Scientific Paranormal Investigation and sent a team to explore what was happening in the couple’s house.
Joshua and Heather found something terrifying after the group survey that they decided to leave the house for their safety. After watching the evidence within the house, they assumed that it could haunt the main house and the guest house attached to it.
They knew that in their house there were strange events that made them frightened. In an interview with the household Heather, who said: “One morning, I woke up to get ready for work and it felt like somebody had been choking me,” she added to the interview, “It shook me to the point that I decided to buy our camera.”
Heather understood that Joshua would not believe her if she told him there was something eerie in their house. She decided not to tell him what was happening. She said, “Sometimes I and my boyfriend would wake up in the morning, and I’d hear an irritating male voice. Just like somebody had their toe stubbed.
Waiting For A Response
Mike Priest was convinced that this was the work of the paranormal. He said, “I definitely believe there is something going on at this house. We are looking forward to checking out this one as well.” He even claimed that after the request of Joshua, not only him but also his team members could record strange sounds in the house.
Mike Priest recounted that he heard something upon getting inside the house. He recalled, “We heard something say, ‘Oh here we go. Oh yeah.’ I heard it as plain as day.”And that is why Mike Priest and his team have decided to go back to the residence of Joshua and Heather to carry out a full-blown paranormal inquiry.
Mike Priest explained that their main goal was to find out if the pictures could be replicated. And afterward, they had to check if a logical explanation could be found before they concluded it was paranormal activity. Mike hoped to find out what the camera recorded in Lily’s room exactly.
Kris was Joshua’s mother, and for over ten years he previously owned the house, 11 years to be exact. It was possible that she was the best person to ask what the family could haunt. Kris said, “I was told that the lady who owned this property died in the main house when we purchased the houses eleven years ago.”
From her previous statement, Joshua’s mother had further explained, “It is an old farmhouse and, according to her niece, it fell down the stairs, broke its hips and lay down for a very long while before it died. She said that the guest house was built for the schizophrenic brother of the lady.
And yet, somehow, another theory came to light and was Jim, the father of Joshua. Jim was very convinced that the person who terrorized Joshua and Heather was the former tenant of the guesthouse. Jim even mentioned, in his WXYZ-TV interview with Detroit, ‘The gentleman who originally lived here…(jumped) from this window that is one story down.’
Heather and Joshua were not close to the truth of the matter and still had no idea who stalked at night around the room of Lily. However, both of them know what to do about it. Heather explained, “It scares us that it could do something else. It’s not physically just going after her, it feels like it’s going after myself too… This has made us want to leave as soon as possible. As soon as possible we’re out of here. This is a spirit. I don’t know what its intentions are, but at this point, it’s becoming physically harmful.”
The social media video that Heather and Joshua posted was viral. This video chilled many audiences, but it was obvious that some people were skeptical about what they saw. Some of those who saw the apparitions did not believe and claimed that there must be some kind of simple trick or explanation for what has been recorded.
Kenny Biddle was someone who had been working for the Skeptical Investigator. He wrote in one of his books: “I immediately noticed something else-the ghost cast a shadow, two in fact. This tells me that a figure is a physical object that can reflect light. In the first milliseconds of the video, as the figure moves left, its shadow can be seen moving through the ceiling by the ceiling fan right.
In his previous statement, Kenny Biddle had even added more comments. He said, “I would surmise either (Heather) and/or (Joshua) had been watching television and had reason to get up out of bed, perhaps go down to the kitchen for a drink/food or a visit to the bathroom, paused the video and walked across the room not realizing they were being recorded.”
Lack of Understanding
They all decided to just look at the images again and did so later, but not at all. They all scanned the images from the video cameras carefully. Although they saw the films several times, however, there was still a lack of understanding of what they saw from the feed. They finally concluded that the distorted figure was a fantasy.
Moreover, Kenny continues, “We know from her statements, that (Heather) discovered the scratches after the baby was awake from a nap, but there’s nothing to disregard Lily’s ability to scratch herself as she sleeps.” And because he had examined and dug deeper, he could find something remarkable.
Kenny had explained further, “I’m not sure exactly why those claims are, but I do have my suspicions. I went to the Facebook page of Heather Brough earlier today and noted that since November 2018 she had posted her first post on a GoFundMe account that she had created that day (26 March 2019) for $5,000..”
The reason Heather appeared to ask for $5000 via a fundraiser on GoFundMe was to move her from the guest house. She stressed that the main reason she wanted to raise funds was to guarantee the safety of her daughter from all the paranormal activities. Kenny was moved to Heather and sent her a Facebook message.
Kenny Biddle reached out to the viral video owner when he saw the video. He was trying to communicate with Heather and said, “Hello, my name is Kenny Biddle, and for over 20 years I have been investigating paranormal claims. I was informed about your video, which is believed to be a ghost walking in your house by several paranormal groups.
In his message, Kenny wrote: “After looking at it, I wondered if there had been a longer film – perhaps footage showing a couple of minutes leading up (and including) to the clip shared by ABC Action News. The clip that was shared starts with the figure in motion and I hoped to see where it originates.
Looking For Confirmation
Kenny said in an interview that he is still waiting for Heather’s answer. His last comment was, “I noticed the television is running, so it would be important to be able to confirm it wasn’t someone watching TV and perhaps got up to get something. I do not say it was a hoax, I just try to get as much information as I can to understand what the video shows. I appreciate the time you took to read this. I’m hoping to hear from you. Have a good day. Have a good day.
To be honest, stories about children who have been haunted are not unusual. In fact, it wasn’t the only story that was told of a haunted child. As it turned out, in Illinois, there was also a famous case. Maritza Elizabeth was a mother 32 years old who was very convinced that in her child’s kid’s crib she saw a baby ghost. One time, she began to get ready after she placed her 18-month-old baby in the crib to sleep.
Maritza went into the room of her son to check him in. She found something strange when she watched the baby monitor as she came in. It was like her baby was curled up next to the face of a baby in the video feed. Maritza got her feet cold and was panicked by what she had seen. She didn’t know what she was supposed to do about the situation.
The mother was losing what she was supposed to do. She felt extremely helpless because all she could do was watch. The spirit seemed to concentrate on her son. She was in a place frozen. She panicked what the next steps she was supposed to take. She was going to find out what was happening.
So Many Questions
Maritza couldn’t sleep at night. She has been kept awake by many thoughts and questions. She thought her son could be at risk. She hoped that her child’s spirit was not harmful. More importantly, she continued to think about what she could do to help and ensure the safety of her son. She decided it was time to inquire while her son slept soundly.
The mother was determined to learn more about the spirit that joined his son in the crib. She took a flashlight without much of a second thought and continued her investigation. The terrified mother admitted during an interview with the local news that “I even tried to get into it with a flashlight while my son was sleeping.”
Maritza wasn’t able to help but wonder what she had found in her room. Perhaps it was the spirit. She decided to document the events. She went online and posted on the baby monitor a photograph of the scene she saw. She added a title saying, “Last night, I was positive that there was a ghost baby in my son’s bed. I’ve been so freaked out, I just slept.
